Hamta Village Snow Trek

Hampta, Himachal Pradesh
3 Days2 Nights

Event Overview

The trek to Hamta is a surreal and intimidating one due to the amount of snow that accumulates during winter. Touching the pass remains a remote possibility. However, you don’t need to go all the way to the top. You can indulge in snow hiking and photography at an altitude of over 3000 m. Soak in the glorious view of the snow- covered Dhauladhar and Pir Panjal ranges amidst a meadow brimmed with snow. It is an altogether different world during winter and one which is a must see for all travel and adventure enthusiasts.
